    small yellow pumpkin on plant It’s not been a great year for pumpkins and squashes – anything close to ground level was munched to extinction by slugs well before it got bigger than a ping pong ball.  A few did escape though because the vines were festooned over fences and the pumpkins were suspended out of harms way.  Whether they will ripen properly remains to be seen, but we should get a couple of meals at least.
